Via SF Examiner, we learn that the number of traffic citations dished out by the Police Department is down 18 percent from last year - and those handed out by officers in the traffic bureau dropped 44 percent from last year, according to police data comparing the first five months of 2011 to the same period in 2011. Captain Al Casciato says that there are many reasons for the decline, including a reduction in police force and centering in on problematic areas. "People's attitudes change and culture changes," Casciato said. "Red-light cameras have really changed how people behave at red-light signals." [SF Examiner/photo via Noel]
